Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

This 1940s bungalow is on a quiet street in the thriving center of Austin—South Congress (shops, music clubs and restaurants) is a mile away and downtown, 2 miles; 15 minutes from Bergstrom International Airport; 3 blocks from Stacey Park and a free public swimming pool open year round. Two living spaces, a dining room, and two bedrooms means communal living with plenty of room to retreat. Two bikes are an alternative way to get around. As your host, I am only a yard and a fence away.

Ellen is a great host who was always available with helpful advice on how to enjoy Austin. We loved sitting on her wonderful porch enjoying the relaxing vibe of Travis Heights. It was a pleasure staying in her SOCO bungalow.

Exactly as pictured, and the reality of staying there was even better. Good location, comfy beds, and the coffee pot did its job every time. (Can you tell my family's priorities?) We especially appreciated the ready-for-use swimming tote with towels as well as the bug spray alrea…

This house is located in a great part of Austin with lots of good restaurants and things to do nearby. Really cute house and comfortable beds. I wish the figs on the trees in the yard had been ripe!
